| The Seychelles lie outside the cyclone
belt but receive monsoon rains from November to April with the northwest
trade winds. This hot and humid season gives way to a period of
slightly cooler weather, though the temperature rarely falls below
23°C, and rougher seas when the trade winds blow from the southeast,
from May to October.
Sun hats and sunglasses essential all year round.
Tropical lightweights, with rainwear advisable in the rainy season.
